As production on Dune 2 prepares to begin later this year, the cast has grown to include even more recognizable names. Since Denis Villeneuve decided to divide Frank Herbert’s novel into two films, Part One ended on a big cliffhanger, and the next sequel, named Dune: Part Two, will return audiences to Arrakis to tell the rest of the story. The decision was vindicated, however, as Dune (or Dune: Part One, if you prefer) grossed over $400 million worldwide and was nominated for a record-breaking six Academy Awards.
Dune 2 Release Date:
The release date of Dune 2 has been pushed back from October 20th, 2023 to November 17th, 2023. The first film was also available on HBO Max on the same day it was released in theatres in the United States, but the sequel will almost certainly only be shown in theatres across the country.
It was in September of 2021, just before the premiere of the first film, when Villeneuve made the announcement that he was eager to get started. He noted that it takes months because “to proceed rapidly in a movie of that size, you still need to construct sets and costumes.” Fortunately, the film is “largely designed,” as he told Empire in February 2022. The fact that this is my first time returning to a previously visited universe is a huge boon to us at the moment. Thus, he said, “I am working with the same group, everyone knows what to do, and we know what it will look like.
While making the film will be more difficult, we are aware of our next moves. The screenplay has been completed. That’s why I’m so sure of myself. If I had to pick one thing that I didn’t know about, it would be the pandemic. In June of 2022, Deadline reported that production on the sequel would begin “in the fall.” If all goes according to plan, then we will indeed return to Arrakis in October 2023.
Official Synopsis Teases a Choice Between Love and Death
“This follow-up picture will chronicle the mythological adventure of Paul Atreides as he unites with Chani and the Fremen while on a warpath of revenge against the conspirators who slaughtered his family,” reads the official synopsis from Warner Bros. and Legendary. He tries to avoid a horrific destiny that only he can foresee while also protecting the one love of his life from a fate worse than death.
